Basal cell carcinoma (BCC) is one of the most common neoplasms in the world and its incidence has been increasing worldwide in recent years. BCCs are caused by an interplay between genetic and environment factors. We conducted a case-control association study in BCC patients and controls from Sweden and Finland. Fifteen single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), IL-6-174G/C, -634G/C, and -597G/A; IL-10-1082G/A and -592C/A; IL-1beta-511C/T; NBS1 exon 5 Glu185Gln; XPC exon 15 Lys939Gln; XPD exon 23… CONTINUE READING
